From the Inside Flap

This book is easy reading. Read it through before doing anything that is suggested. It won't take long. Maybe an hour or two. When I wrote this book, I got a permit to legally make alcohol. I'll tell you how you can get one too. I'll show you how to make simple and safe alcohol. Don't be frustrated by any complex magazine articles or technical books you have read on making fuel. I have read some of them. It would cost a fortune to buy the materials they suggest. Some of their technical jargon would scare an engineer. I don't have much money. So I used whatever I had on hand to make my alcohol fuel still. I'll show you my simple way--the way mountain folks made it from things lying around in the yard. I hope you enjoy this trip. I plan to update this book soon so let me know if you want me to contact you when the new edition is available. I would enjoy any feedback you have regarding making or using alcohol or any other alternative fuel. You may contact me th! rough my publisher at: Jim Wortham c/o Marathon International Book Company, PO Box 40, Madison, IN 47250-0040 U.S.A. Please enclose a stamped self-address envelope for my reply. Or email me at: jwortham@seidata.com

This is a response to the above reviewer who found the book useless. A lot of people still have old tractors, pickups or cars older than 20 years. Also, any late model fuel injected car can run 50% alcohol with no problem. If you use Swifty brand gas, you are already using 10% ethanol. Plus, if you can't afford to put gas in that big block Chevy to cruise around in, remember that top fuel dragsters and indy cars both run on alcohol. Plus, the hi-compression motors of the old days love this stuff. Stills are pretty easy to make. I have a friend that brews up his own moonshine on the stove with a converted pressure cooker.

This is another example of someone trying to make money by marketing old ideas in a time when the ethanol industry is on the verge of a major contribution to alternative fuels. The trouble with this book and so many others like it is that the author has not updated the book to keep up with technological advancements in the alternative fuels field. This book is totally useless in the 21st cenbtury unless maybe you own a 1955 Edsel with a carburetor.
